  • Cross Cultural Management

In this era of globalization and its consequences, it is crucial for business leaders to have an understanding of cultural differences and to be able to manage them both to reduce conflict and to increase communication, learning, and innovation. This course explores what culture is and how cultural differences influence different management situations, from individual performance in international contexts, to multicultural teams and global organizations. Students will apply the lessons in a live, collaborative project. Students will develop a deep, theoretical understanding of the nature of cultures, gain analytical skills in diagnosing and mapping cultural differences, and develop behavioral skills for working effectively across cultures.
